COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first release in our Moveable Yeast series, Weedwacker is the result of our pitching Lawnmower wort (wort is the unfermented beer) with Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast. Weedwacker will be available draft only. This is a study in how different yeasts have different effects on beers. Note: As the base beer for this beer is a Kolsch, this beer will remain in the Kolsch style.

bottle... pours an ugly golden straw, not much of a head... smells iike a kolsch, a bit of grass, pils, and a little skunk... very thin beer, a bit of lemon watery with grass, easy to drink but so boring

Bottled. Poured clear, straw golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma picked up bready and grassy notes above all else, with orange rind and banana accents.. overall very earthy.. I enjoyed it. The flavor found bready notes and honey at the core.. peppery yeast, banana, and cloves around.. dry and peppery on the finish. Light-bodied and dry on the palate.. lots of influence from the hefe yeast.. tasty stuff.

Now this was one good ‘thin’ hefeweizen. I was expecting a bit more in the flavors (when comparing against other hefeweizens) but this one just didn’t hold up to those expectations. Now don’t get me wrong, it is a good brew, just not as robust as I wish it would have been. Still a good brew to kick around at the fish fry for sure. Quite light and very refreshing with a zingy citrusy aftertaste so it is a fine bet that this would pair up nicely with some grilled oysters on the half-shell or some spicy fish tacos!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy pale yellow a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has notes of banana and other fruity esters backed by sweet grains. Flavor starts with sweet bread and grains but has notes of banana and grass in the finish.

One of the lighter beers out there. Definitely malty and can be a good transition from all the belgian beers. Has a good smell but the after taste can be a bit overwhelming.

12 oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with slow fading white head, slightly hazy. Aroma is somewhat grassy with notes of yeast and malt. Taste has a distinct yeasty note along with some noble hop flavors coming through also.

48FanInCali (747) - California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
12 oz bottle. Very cloudy light gold pour with nice white head with some lacing. Nose is yeast, banana and a little belgian funk. Taste is crisp with banana, lemon zest, and yeasty doughy goodness. Very nice Kolch.

llcooldave (1118) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Somewhat of a "Belgian" aroma to it; some clove and banana. Pours a cloudy golden color. It kinda looks like a tripel. Clean malt flavor with some spice thrown in; coriander, followed by a dry aftertaste. Overall, it’s really good. I would have thought it was a Belgian ale and not a Kolsch with Hefe yeast.

nogov (121) - Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is yeasty banana bread. Pours hazy straw yellow, with thick white head. Taste is hefeweizen but with a subtle tropical fruit aspect (very subtle). Refreshing beer and interesting to see how much difference yeast makes.

12oz bottle. Dull golden pour with a creamy white head. Aromas of spice, lemon, banana, and some grassy hops. I really like how this smells, especially in comparison to Lawnmower. Flavor is fruity and crisp like a Kolsch but has some banana and clove like a Hefe.
